Maybe he just doesn't understand you very well, and he might perceive you as a kid who is a druggie wannabe musician that doesn't want to do anything with his life, and you need to make it clear in an assertive way without being aggressive. He's your dad, so he's got to want the best for you in the long run.
I wouldn't know, I never knew my dad.
